China has seen a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases since many restrictions were lifted earlier this December.

A senior Chinese health official said he believes China is experiencing the first of three expected waves of COVID-19 infection this winter.

The country has seen an increase in the number of infections since it lifted its strictest restrictions earlier this month.

The latest official statistics seem to show a relatively low number of new daily infections.

But there are fears that these numbers may be an underestimate due to the recent drop in COVID-19 testing.
